that it is really a problem, and i think also, the really effective work that was done in copenhagen and trying to get the chinese and the indians in particular on board, because that's a big argument that the opponents make, is that, you know, we're going to do all this, we're going to, you know, raise our energy prices, we're going to make it harder to do business and then china and india are going to go take advantage of that and use that as a competitive advantage and we're going to lose more jobs, so -- but there are lots and lots of examples on both sides of effective messaging and ineffective and i think professor griffin will talk about that later. he'll probably give you a lot more insight into it too. yeah. >> we talked about -- [inaudible] -- if so, why and if you've seen advantages or disadvantages to that or not being a federally registered lobbyist and working through them instead. >> well, i've only been doing this for two years and in the two years i've been doing it, the rules have been very clear, so you know, there is -- there's really not much gray in what i do. you know, i'
of the climate summit in copenhagen as a result of the failure and he says this is what happened. if you like musicals or politicians how about both together? two very different productions do just that. opening this weekend in germany "hope, the obama musical story." actors will portray the president and first lady michelle obama, as well as other major figures in the 2008 election, talking, singing and dancing in the show. including john mccain, sarah palin and even the reverend jeremiah wright. opening next month in chicago, rush limbaugh the musical. the man playing the conservative icon he says it's gaining attention. he said, "first i thought i was just an actor, now i'm a cog in the leftist propaganda machine. the machine kicks into gear soon and this cog can't wait." and sal has been summoned for jury duty but sal is a cat. a local tv station says they think the furry friend could have been added to the jury pool because they mailed his name in last census under pet. they wrote in consensus form saying that he didn't speak english but he was removed from the list only after a vet said
the stage for further cooperation with china in preparation for the copenhagen conference on climate change. he discussed exchange rates and trade, clean energy, military to military exchanges, human rights, and stopping the spread of nuclear weapons. we outline the key of compliments of the visit in a joint statement issued by president obama and president hu jintao on november 17. it has been said before that in order to get china right, you have to get the region right. the united states is a vital contributor to asian security and economic prosperity. our active presence in asia helps promote regional security and stability. we intend to deepen our engagement and strengthen our leadership in the region by strengthening our commitments to allies and partners, and enhancing our involvement in regional institutions. and the secretary addressed these issues, as well as our presence in the region, in an important speech in honolulu yesterday. the president's trip to china demonstrates that fact in the region demonstrate the importance we place on east asia which remains vital to u.s. securit
the copenhagen climate summit, and one of my big takeaways from talking to the scientists there is there is not a lot of time. we may hit an inflection point where doing anything won't make a difference. so time is of the essence. but it is an issue because the threat is in the distant future or maybe the near future, but not right upon us. that a lot of people out there, a lot of voters who are busy just trying to get by and maybe busy trying to find jobs don't really focus on -- it's a tailor-made issue for strong leadership from the top. and that means not giving it to a hundred other people to sort of work out their deals but trying to come in and corral. and if it involves working with, you know, lindsay graham and joe lieberman, fine, but i think the white house should be driving this. not leaving it to the senate's own devices. >> did you get the memo? did i miss something last week? was there a coalition government formed and they didn't tell us? >> yeah. scott brown became prime minister. i guess you missed that story. >> i did. david corn of "mother jones" magazi
on the heels of what happened, you know, in the lobbying in copenhagen, for chicago to get the olympics bid. we know how that turned out. >> well, look, i think that's a separate matter, but i think politically speaking, it's very important for the president to go up here. this is a democratic candidate in a very important seat for the democrats. so, the president, as the leader of our party, needs to go up there and be seen. i think if you weren't going to go up there, that would really do some damage to the base of the party. but look, it is possible. i think martha's going to pull it out in the end. i think that's what we're all obviously working hard for. it is possible that if she doesn't win, you know, democrats are going to have to go back to the drawing board and take a hard look at how we are effective in the 2010 elections. you know, i think one of the dynamics, though, that we're seeing, alex, if i may, is there's a very strong an anti-incumbency, antiestablishment feeling that i think we're seeing over and over again, and again, that's part of why this idea that the coakley campaign
of that is it could be another copenhagen olympics trip because the blowback on the president would be so bad if he goes back there and coakley still loses. at the same time, his whole agenda, health care and everything else, seems to me, that the message to democrats, if coakley loses, is this is the canary in the coal mine, that health care all these moves the obama administration is making isn't working and that we have to worry about this year's mid terms and not passing the president's agenda. >> what you have going on here is a microcosm of what might be happening throughout the rest of the country. you have a perfect storm of ingredients against incumbents. in this case, incumbent attorney general. there's a river of resentment toward people in public life here. there is also a combination of anxiety and anger overall of the issues that confront families and individuals as well as the nation at large. this huge question here in massachusetts about the costs of the proposed health care plan and it's affecting this election. >> thank you very much, mike barnicle. >>> coming up, the latest on t
on the all-expense paid trip of at least 20 members of congress to the copenhagen climate summit to last month. the bipartisan delegation was so large they needed three military jets, two 737s, and a gulfstream 5. some members of congress brought along their spouses, their kids. there were also senators and staff members who made the trip, most of them flies over commercial. pelosi refused to answer any questions about cost for this or where they all stayed, even though she was the one who decided who went. her office says only that it will, quote, comply with disclosure requirements, unquote. cbs puts the cost of military jet flying time at about $170,000, plus the cost of dozens of commercial flights, hundreds of hotel stays, many at the five-star marriott, and tens of thousands in meals and other entertainment expense. it's a disgrace. the national unemployment rate is 10%, employers cut more jobs than expected just last month. we got the numbers on friday. people are suffering in this country, california, pelosi's home state is faced with a $20 billion budget deficit. governor schwar
is the security of the citizens. >> thank you mr. speaker. given the disappointing finish to the copenhagen conference what action can my honorable friend tell us he will be taking in order to keep the momentum up on this absolutely vital task of climate change? >> mr. speaker, for the first time the world was able to agree that we should not have a climate change policy that did not address the problems of rising temperatures and the 2% limit was agreed by all countries. we also have agreement countries will notify what they will do by 2020 and they've got to do so by january 31st. we are obviously pressing countries to be in the position they can reduce the amount of gigatons in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions from the mid 50's in 2020 to the mid 40's and there has been a great transparency achieved with every country agreeing to report what they are doing that we have not yet got the international duty that we need and we haven't yet got the announcement from all countries they support the 50% reduction by 2015. that is what is still to be done and i agree we must not talk to all tho
talk a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen again or climate change and the development agenda with regard to adaptation and mitigation. >> thank you, hattie. has you know, we are very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would commit to do our part of $100 billion by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency which have to be adhered to in order for us to be able and, frankly, willing to make these investments. but i think that for many of the developing countries, this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an ongoing challenge and that is why i mention we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role to play more co
prestige, the president campaigned in cokopp n copenhag copenhagen. and lost president obama promised to reach across the aisle and govern, and yet scott brown is able to tap into the frustration. >> call it frustration or sadness. >> one thing to keep in mind here, president obama won every county in massachusetts. the deepest blue the ones he won by the most, the brighter counties, the ones where he was weaker. everyone is looking at the weather forecast. sam champion, our very own weather dude, tells us we are expecting rain in boston. light snow and rain mix. in the southern part of the state where republicans do relatively better. there is about an inch of ow expected. it doesn't look, though, the weather will be so bad to affect the turnout. robin, sam? >> you sound like our weather dude there. george, working the contacts in washington. what are you hearing? >> democrats are braced for a pretty big defeat here. scott brown, republican, has really been surging in the last couple of days. and white house congressional democrats are hoping for a miracle but they're expecting the d
ahead. caller: are you aware of the president's -- the brazilian president's speech in copenhagen where he said, the problem is the white people in the world. the second question is there is a country -- a company in brazil that is an offshore drilling company that in june, the obama administration gave a $15 billion loan to and i think is quite ironic that in february, george soros bought majority shares in that company. effectively, this administration has paid back george soros for getting elected with taxpayer funds. guest: i do not know anything about the second issue, but i can comment on the first. the brazilian president is a colorful, charismatic leader. then he has been for some to, to a half years. very annoyed that they have had to do things that the united states and europe-not have to do. and he has -- have not had to do. and he has been very open about saying that they have not had to do things that they've had to do in developing countries. host: salt lake city, democratic cruller. caller: we have -- and democratic collar. host: we have more natural gas than any of the c
bill and lack of action in copenhagen and also somehow cited cuba and venezuela as we should emulate an effort to help with the country. it was baffling to make any sense of it. it was very difficult. >> danny glover is a wonderful actor but he needs to stick to that and let the commentary to other people. when we tie in a earthquake to the fact we didn't pass global parming pacts was utterly beyond bizarre. >> it was disconnected. >> it makes miria carrie's statement look coherent. >> sober. >> she comes across looking like a rogue scholar. >> back to pat robertson. from the religious point of view, is it his belief system. he doesn't believe that tragedy happens randomly. he said it is the devil? >> sometimes people will have different vuse that god is judging and others that the devil is unleashed and they are legitimately thelogical views. but many of us believe that calamities that we face irregardless of how good or bad we are it is how we confront and deal with them that is the essence of faith. faith does not remove us from getting cancer and having colds or the flu, what fai
now. >> that's president obama at the copenhagen climate summit which ended with a non-binding agreement between nations. executive editor of "rolling stone" magazine who brings us the cover story "as is world burns," the author writes this -- despite the near certainty of a climate catastrophe, there are no crowds marching in the streets to demand action, no prime time speech from president obama. even the most aggressive climate legislation will still fall tragically short, but climate scientists tell us need to be done to avoid the looming chaos. in that sense the battle over global warming may already be over. your very provocative cover, "you idiots." who were you talking to? >> we were talking to 17 folks who we think are climate killers. people who have done the most or done the least -- >> you put warren buffett on that. >> warren buffett has not only trashed climate change legislation calling it a huge tax saying it will cause jobs, he's also been investing heavily in its failure. he bought $26 billion railroad, the biggest acquisition in his career, a railroad
korea, and afghanistan. the president said the stage for further cooperation in copenhagen on climate change. he discussed exchange rates and trade, clean energy, military-to-military education changes, human rights, and stopping the right of spread of the nuclear weapons. in a joint statement issued by president obama and jintao. in order to get china right, you have to get the region right. this is the vital to economic prosperity. our act of presence helps promote regional security and stability. we intend to deepen our engagement and strengthen by strengthening our commitments to allies and partners and enhancing our involvement in regional institutions. the secretary addressed these issues as well as our presence in the region in an important speech in honolulu yesterday. the president's trip to china -- and the region, demonstrated the importance we place on east asia which remains vital to u.s. security and prosperity. in the november joint statement, the chinese recognize the positive role that the united states plays by saying they welcome the united states has a an asia-paci
to copenhagen last month. the summit did not produce much progress, it did reportedly produce big hits at the expense accounts, we hear, cbs reports more than 100 members of congress and their spouses dropped tens of thousands of dollars for luxury suites and dinners. martha: oops. bill: 15 democratic congressmen and 6 republican members of the house, room and food bills ran $4400 each for two days. a pretty good eatin'. martha: i heard one say, it was a business trip. bill: more than two grand a day. and adds to that the cost of the flight to denmark, commercial and military and the bill total tops the $1 million mark. martha: okay. bill: your money! martha: yeah, that's right. all right, here's the question -- a question for you, still playing the blame game after a year in the oval office, the white house continuing to harken back to the bush administration, quite a bit in fact to explain the state of the country. calling out the previous administration at least 7 times just since last tuesday. when republican scott brown won the massachusetts senate seat. steve hildebrand is a form
copenhagen climate conference, after the e-mails. what's going on? >> we kind of joke about it. it's just bad timing any time there is some big weather climate conference, there seems to be a cold spell. we'll see how it pans outd for 2010, but globally, temperatures, believe it or not, are still above averabelow aver. >> that's why it's climate change. >> 8:10 eastern, a double agent, a spy among spies among a suicide bombing that killed seven cia agents in afghanistan. how did he fool the jordanian government and gain trust in our community? >>> the las vegas courtroom shootout caught on gunman's name and motive in las vegas.
